2020 Pre-Orders, New Releases, Upcoming Models, etc......l The Big List!!

Watch brethren,

This is a repeat of the thread from the last couple of years that we try to post all the new releases related to our favorite hobby. This is simple thread with limited rules.

1. This is purely an informational thread so when you post try to provide the following info.

- Name of Brand and Model
- Watch Dimensions
- Expected Release Date
- Expected Price Range (Pre-Order / Retail)
- Link to Brand website or Pre-Order info page
- Link to WUS thread about specific model (if applicable)

2. This is not a thread to advertise for a specific model or brand so please limit pictures to a couple of representative shots. No need for the entire product portfolio

3. This is not a thread to debate homages, microbrands, macrobrands, swiss vs chinese, ETA vs Miyota, stainless steel vs ti, pvd vs DLC........you get the idea.....just tell us about the cool new watch you just found out is coming down the pike

4. This is for watches either announced or released in 2020 (yes there will be some overlap from previous years)

5. Keeping with forum rules no Replicas please.

Very much looking forward to this new offering from Marnaut which follows on from the brand’s first model, the Dark Surge. I’m hoping it’ll make it to me before my holiday so I can take it into the sea.

Marnaut Seascape
40mm Supercompressor case with 200m water resistance
Miyota 9015 automatic movement
Expected in June 2020
Can be ordered on Kickstarter for $299

The Marnaut is nice looking, decent specs. I check Kickstarter almost daily for "watch" but don't remember seeing the Marnaut, maybe because it's a "timepiece"...

Looks nice at first glance. No mentioning of the movement though. If I understand correctly no bracelet is included, which might be a good thing because the fitment of the end-link is awful.

G Shock are making a lot of noise about the L.E. Royal Marines Mudmaster that is supposed to launch in mid January but other than plenty of pics of muddy Royal Marines the details are a bit sparse.

Seen this and whilst it's not by taste I'm impressed by Nodus' designs, good looking watch.

The first generation had the ETA 2824 but this generation will house the Miyota 9039, judging by their comments on their IG feed.

I updated the original post with this info, did not notice it was missing so thanks for asking.

For that price I would hope a Sellita SW200!

Great looking watch, but missed opportunity with the bezel imho.. if it was a rotatable 12h bezel it would have been perfect.
